Write Protect Error Message

I recently attempted to upload my pictures from the Olympus Tough-6000 to my PC, the device was found, I chose the action to view files in a folder. It opened and nothing appeared. I removed the device thinking I had do something wrong. I turned on the camera and an error message "write protect" appeared, and would not let me take any pictures? How can this be fixed and are my pictures OK? PLEASE HELP

Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup- right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

However if you need to save these images first: As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased,lost or corrupted. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge.

You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and many people have had much success in recovering lost images.

Data recovery is a booming industry, and many appropriate services and software can be found by searching regional phone and business directories or the Internet for terms such as "image recovery" or "data recovery".

Olympus Stylus Tough 6000 won't upload new pics


Perhaps I can help????
I don't know how many pictures you already took, but perhaps you did more than 10000? Your camera can shoot pictures in one directory, with numbers 0001 till 9999. When it reached 9999, it will automatically make a new directory and start over with number 0001. Not sure if that happened, but you could look for another directory on your memory card.

Then I do have a question. Do you mind what happens with your pictures when your camera dies? Because I think that is the only place you have all your pictures. (I hope I'm wrong) Or worse what if you lose your camera? Or did you already make backups from your pictures?
Try to make it an habit to backup all your pictures shortly after you took them. And one backup is none backup. At least two backups on 2 different media. Like one backup on your computer, one on an external hard disk, memory stick or DVD.

Can't upload video from camera to pc Olympus TOUGH TG-310 Digital Camera


Do you have Windows Live Photo Gallery? It comes with Windows 7, but if not you can download it here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-live/photo-gallery-get-started
  1. Open Windows Live Photo Gallery
  2. Connect your camera
  3. Click the Import icon in the top left corner.
  4. Select your Olympus and click import. It should import both photos and videos.

You can also try and select the videos you want using the file download module Windows displays when a new device is plugged in. If that doesn't work, try
  1. Start > Computer > Olympus Tough TG-310
  2. Then open the folders until you find the videos you want. Select them and copy them to your desktop (or any other preferred location).
I have had video issues with my Olympus TOUGH (could not delete them from the camera) which turned out to be a formatting problem with the memory card.

Is there any way to download images from an Olympus stylus tough 6000 to a flash drive or external hard drive without using a computer?


You can download images to a personal photo backup device such as an Epson P5000 (which is essentially a screen, batteries, hard drive, and just enough computer to transfer the pictures).

In general, the answer is no. The camera doesn't contain enough circuitry to do this, and neither do flash drives or most external hard drives.

If you need to back up your photos while traveling and don't want to carry a laptop computer, make sure you have adequate memory cards. And if you can find an internet cafe, you may be able to burn the pics to a CD/DVD and/or upload them to an internet site.
